  • How was Army autocratic
    • Their role was to protect only the Kaiser, not the state
    • Independent from the Reichstag
      • So had no one controlling them; only the Kaiser
    • Conscription so every man had to join the army for 2-3 years.
    • Discipline, pride in military institutions and love for the Fatherland taught in schools
      • So boys were bought up to love and fight in the army.
    • Had the right to introduce martial law
